What’s the difference between in-home senior care and home health care?

In-Home care is a broad term used to describe several forms of care provided in-home. Generally, it covers personal care (bathing, dressing, toileting, feeding, transferring, grooming), homemaking services (light housekeeping and chores) and companionship services, which may include personal shopping, transportation, and socialization. In-home senior care is paid privately, whereas home health care is prescribed by a physician and covered by Medicare or supplemental insurance providers.

Is your agency licensed by the state?

Yes, our agency is licensed by the state of Texas (Health & Human Services).

Can my loved one be taken care of safely at home?

Yes, often patients who are hospitalized, develop complications, such as infections. When someone is cared for at home, the risk of infection is much lower. Home Care provides one-on-one attention, and allows the patient and family to have more involvement in the care.
